Da Vinci’s Notebook: “Ally McBeal” (2000)

Da Vinci’s Notebook were a treasure. Their instrument-free performances alone are noteworthy, but equally amazing is the laugh-out-loud (I did anyway) rhymes in the chorus of their “tribute” to a 90’s TV icon.

If you find this half as funny as I do, I hope you aren’t listening with your mouth full.

Da Vinci’s Notebook: “Another Irish Drinking Song” (2002)

What the Capitol Steps are to politics, Da Vinci’s Notebook are to…pretty much everything else. The award-winning novelty a capella group from Maryland’s take on traditional Irish folk balladry is about as wacky as their treatment, on other songs, of subjects such as liposuction, Billy Joel’s face, and enormous…uh, male members.

Random stabs of cultural muddlement such as a bar of “Hava Nagila” and a shout of “Olé!” punctuate the silliness.

Da Vinci’s Notebook: “Liposuction” (1997)

Comic a cappella vocal group Da Vinci’s Notebook are here to help with your post-holiday weight loss. You’ve already broken the New Year’s resolutions–time for something a little more drastic.

Predating the a capella trend in pop by a number of years, Da Vinci’s Notebook put the focus on humor above polished perfection.

Hence the deliberate sped-up tempo, cornpone delivery, conspicuous throat-clearing and other comic touches.Maybe not as radio-ready as Pentatonix, Rockapella, et al. But arguably more entertaining.
